I became a UU shortly after meeting my wife, Glynda Christian, a life-long Unitarian. We were married in a UU church in the bucolic village of Petersham, in Western Massachusetts, and over the years have been active members of UU congregations in Massachusetts, South Carolina, and California. My sermon, titled “The Saviors of God,” traces my journey to becoming a UU secular humanist.
